A Mighty Achieve­ment

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

Yar­ra­wonga Windsurfing Club mem­ber, 6 year old Pax­ton Poll, com­pleted a solo cross­ing of Lake Mul­wala re­cently.

He sailed from the Yar­ra­wonga Yacht Club to the Mul­wala Ski Club and can claim to be the youngest to do so.

A mighty achieve­ment for one so young.

The pen­nant sea­son is done and dusted, and club cham­pi­onship events are al­most fin­ished.

Club cham­pi­onships:

The nom­i­nated mixed pairs have been com­pleted with some great matches played; the win­ners were Peter Humphreys and Nola Mon­gor, with run­ners up Doug Ches­sum and Bev Nor­wood.

The B Sin­gles cham­pi­onship early rounds have been com­pleted, un­for­tu­nately the Semi­fi­nals were post­poned af­ter a few ends due to rain, they will be com­pleted be­gin­ning 9.30 on Good Fri­day.

So­cial Bowls:

Twilight bowls were played on March 14 with a good turnout of play­ers, in­clud­ing 5 vis­i­tors, win­ners were Nola Mon­gor and Bar­bara Pat­ter­son, run­ners up were Jan Cor­boy and Graeme Al­bert.

Krack­er­jack

Our Krack­er­jack tour­na­ment will be played on Easter Satur­day and Sun­day start time 9.30, names in by 10.00am Good Fri­day.

Two very good days of com­pe­ti­tion with $500.00 of prize money avail­able, come along and join in, sin­gle en­tries most wel­come.

Vale Pat Tal­bot,

It was with sad­ness we learnt of the pass­ing of Pat who is the wife of mem­ber Paul Tal­bot, our con­do­lences go out to Paul and his fam­ily.

YMGCR Bowls Our monthly 2 bowls triples were played on a beau­ti­ful au­tumn Wed­nes­day, with 24 teams do­ing com­bat on our fan­tas­tic greens.

We had four 4 game win­ners, the team from Ba­rooga of Ray Emer­son, Stu­art Ralph and the old champ Ger­ald Rothe had 55 shots up.

The Wan­garatta team of Greg McDon­ald, Leon Quar­ta­man and Wil­lie Hall were run­ners up with 50 shots up.

Best 1st game win­ners were Bob Adams rink with a score of 21 shots up, 2nd game win­ners were Vic Brin­cat with 14 shots, 3rd game win­ners were Eu­gene Hob­son with 17 shots up and 4th game was share be­tween Bob Fid­des and Mick Reilly with 12 shots.

We would like to thank our spon­sors, the guys from the Cum­beroona, so if you want a good trip on the lake, give them a call.

Thurs­day had 12 ladies take to our greens, the win­ners were Lil Bor­wick and Sue Evans, run­ners up were Marie White­head and Barb Ver­bunt and the jack­pot failed to go off.

Fri­day Bowls were can­celled due to the lack of num­bers, let’s hope we start get­ting num­bers back now that pen­nant has fin­ished, we all need to sup­port our club, so put your name down.

On Satur­day we had 14 teams play the first two rounds of the mixed pairs, the semi-fi­nals will be played dur­ing the week and the Fi­nal will be played on Thurs­day 29 at 10.00.

The semi-fi­nals will be con­tested by Garry and Claire San­ders against Lau­reen Smith and Greg Green, in the other fi­nal the gi­ant killers of Mal Beer and Robyn Moore who beat one of the favourite com­bi­na­tions of Anne Miles and Peter Ve­lardo, will play two ex­pe­ri­ence cam­paign­ers in Peter Bel­lis and Barb Ver­bunt.

Well done to ev­ery­body who played and good luck to the re­main­ing teams.

Last week Anne Miles rep­re­sented Vic­to­ria against the strong NSW team at Whit­tle­sea, un­for­tu­nately the Vic’s come up short but Anne was voted best fe­male bowler for Vic­to­ria.

With that per­for­mance she has now been se­lected for Vic­to­ria in the Aus­tralian Sides Cham­pi­ons which will be played in Dar­win in May.

A bit of house­keep­ing, Bel­mont BC will once again be vis­it­ing us for their an­nual game, so if you want a game and lunch please put your name on the list on the no­tice board, the game will be on April 17 and start at 10 am.

This year we are try­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent by hav­ing our Pre­sen­ta­tion on Satur­day, April 28 we will have a game of bowls fol­lowed by af­ter­noon tea, if you have won a cham­pi­onship could you please make an ef­fort to at­tend.

There will be a list for the cater­ing.
